South Africa names Lue to replace Taylor

South African Tourism has appointed Angelina Lue as its new head of global tourism, filling a role that has been vacant since Rick Taylor resigned last April. The former executive manager for conventions and events at Cape Town Routes Unlimited started on 1 May. Lue has an extensive background in conference and event management. She has previously held management positions at the Sandton Convention Centre, the Gauteng Tourism Authority and as Cape Town ICC conference sales and marketing manager. The NTO has been working to increase South Africa’s profile as a business destination through its brand Business Unusual, which was established last May. In the past year, it has attracted UK corporates including HSBC, Hewlett-Packard and Barclays. In addition to managing the strategic direction of the business tourism portfolio, Lue will also be responsible for finding new opportunities for Business Unusual. South Africa business tourism manager Patricia D’arcy added that Lue was joining South African Tourism at a time of expansion. “We are targeting the C&I market more aggressively,” she said.
